    WP Directory

    Has anyone been able to create a directory using wordpress. I have seen it talked about and I have seen one plug in. But I am having a hard time find an actual example of a link directory or article directory being powered by WP///

    Wordpress is built as a blogging platform, not a directory.

    I ran across a directory (don't remember the URL) that was run on WP. It didn't seem see even have a plugin. They set up a page per category and used the comments for directory submissions.

    You do have other options too, there are many other directory softwares that you can try too. Some actually look better if used since phpld is becoming cliche through its overuse.

    agree. i think it would be hard for you to make it ... if you are master in PHP may be you can... but it would be hard and time consuming... because you need to edit more codec....

    May I ask why do you want to use wordpress as directory? Is the reason that wordpress is a free script? If this is the reason you can use esyndicat directory script which has free version.

    I think I saw a plugin that turns WordPress into a directory script. Hang on, I'll see if I find it when I head home for a few hours on Tuesday.
